Our ambitious goal is to create a “network of networks” of Jewish communities who will connect and discuss with one another, bridging gaps of geography and ideology and eventually creating a Wiki-like version of the collective wisdom of contemporary Judaism.
Sugia will create a dynamic global Jewish discourse that gives rise to a Wiki-like response to the great questions of our time.
Our project is inspired by the Talmudic tradition of mahloket, a unique invention of our ancestors, who created a mode of constructive debate which bridges rather than builds walls between us. Participants do not have to be familiar with the Talmud. On the contrary, they might have never even heard of it! The platform and content of Sugia is designed to be inviting and accessible to a wide spectrum of users.
Sugia fosters vibrant dialogue about the burning ethical and existential issues of our time. It is a new media platform for Jews worldwide to meet and think together.
Ancient texts come to life through their interaction with modern film, art and literature, in an interactive, user-generated experience. It is inspired by the Talmudic tradition of mahloket, a unique invention of our ancestors, who created a mode of constructive debate which bridges rather than builds walls between us.
